[artist id=”860639″]50 Cent[/artist] says that he’s not following in [artist id=”1061″]Dr. Dre’s[/artist] footsteps. Dre recently worked with [artist id=”1340778″]the Game[/artist] in the studio — but Fif says that just because Game and Dre are on the same page musically, it doesn’t mean he’s welcoming back the former G-Unit member.
“You shouldn’t really hold your breath,” 50 said about him and Game collaborating again. “If Dre decides to work with him, that’s Dre’s prerogative — his album, he can do what he wants. He’s Dre.”
A photo recently appeared on the Internet showing Dre, Snoop and the Game in the lab, with Game tweeting about the session for Detox.
“They needed me to get in contact with Game,” Snoop said recently on L.A.’s “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” radio show. “I had the number in my phone. I shot it that way — once Game came through, he and Dre hollered. They have a great relationship.”
Back in July, Game said he was open to patching things up with the G-Unit.
“Jimmy [Iovine] always says, ‘Man, I told you guys not to break up the Beatles,’ ” Game said. “He says he told John Lennon the same thing a long time ago. But I was young, man. I was dumb. I did a lot of dumb things. I felt me and 50 clashed. I’m not gonna dis 50. I’m not gonna go back on the plane. He had his side, I had my side. I did what I felt was necessary for me and my career to have longevity and survive in hip-hop and music to be around when I’m Quincy Jones’ age — not just be Quincy Jones’ age, but be a Quincy Jones. Now, four albums in, I can honestly say from Banks to Buck to Dre to Yayo to whoever, if it would have kept going, endless paper. Millions of albums sold — because we were great together. Me and 50’s chemistry was like how Method Man was to Redman when they get in. You know when Method Man gets with Redman, it’s going down.”
